Gawd I hate TM.

What makes it even worse is that some venues charge you a stinking service fee!

I went to a show at The Tabernacle in Atlanta. While there, I went to the Box Office to get tix for another show. Face value was $25, but I had to pay $30. A $5 fee just to buy the damn ticket.

OH, and venues have a lot to do with those crazy fees. There's another small venue in Atlanta (Variety Playhouse) where the TM basic service charge (what they charge per ticket) isn't more than $5.

I think the most offensive TM moment was when I brought a ticket to see Sharon Jones in LA. Face value was $26, and, after fees, I think I paid over $40.

I've actually avoided going to some shows because of TM.
